Three league games remain before the end of October while one domestic cup and one European outing also have to be included.

It will be the Catalan side's first outing in the cup this term and the aim is certainly to win the trophy that they lifted two years ago in the incredible treble-winning campaign.

Champions League

October also sees one Champions League game to be played as FC Copenhagen visit Camp Nou on October 20 in the third matchday of the continental competition.
